Over the weekend Anglers from NJ got a big suprise when a rod doubled over and line was screaming out with something very large, After 60 minutes of Expert angling by Ken and Jim a Large Porbeagle came to the surface. With all the Tuna gear still in the barn the crew was busy trying to MacGyver a harpoon and a flying gaff. The fish came by and the dart did not stick in the fish,it ran and dumped another 100 plus feet of line. Another 30 minute battle was underway as the harpoon was rerigged with different thoughts. Again the anglers danced around and brought the fish to the surface,again the dart did not penatrate.
Now this fish,well over 250 pounds is hooked on a Haddock rig 80lb leader and a Mustad 4/0 hook!!
Capt. Kevin gets on the radio looking for assistance. The Kayman Too was in the close distance and had a Tuna harpoon still onboard, after handing it off to the Lisa&Jake it was rigged and ready. With the fish still on pushing two hours it was brought to the surface once againand with the proper tools it was game over! The fish was tailwrapped the made into steaks for the grill!
Congrads to Ken and Jim who had much experience fighting big game to bring this large fish to gaff!
